Another tea room Thursday. Well, I need to boost myself because of Thursday nights part-time job. This one was delivered day before I ordered it, so apparently really fresh! Let´s see.
Gaiwan, approx. 100-120 ml. I should ask. I don´t know how much leaves in, but it was quite a lot in my opinion. I have not counted steeps, but 1 liter thermos was gone. Each steep about 15-30 seconds.
Okay, now to the tea:
Aroma was storng orchid garden, floral, with little notes of smoke.
Colour of brew was light golden which was turning to darker and darker. Leaves went through the strainer of gaiwan. Not much of them though.
Taste was wonderful, floral, with little astrigency. But still smooth, mellow. Energy boosting.
I stayed awake till 6 am without any troubles with short, about few 15 minutes naps in bus back home. So apparently wake up call. The tea was wonderful, for great price / value ratio. I paid 108 CZK for whole thermos and I can make it as I wanted. Really, 20 seconds was average steep and I am surprised how bold it was.
Flavors: Floral, Orchid, Smoke
